Frankl and the Search for Meaning

Synopsis
Dr Viktor E Frankl, founder of logotherapy, describes man’s search for meaning as a form of height psychology as opposed to Freudian theory, which is described as depth psychology. Explains that in man’s continuous growth upward toward self-actualisation, he discovers new meanings for himself. Designed to promote discussion, especially between the religious and secular views. Raises the question of how to respond to the client who sees no purpose in life.
